Thank you for pointing that out. Some of our older free patterns do not have yardage charts for each size but we are hoping to upgrade them soon. :) The 2 yards listed in The Thread tutorial for this pattern will work for all the included sizes.

Annamarie profile image Pattern Sizing
Reviewer: Annamarie

The pattern sizing is generous. I normally take a size 8-10 in pattern sizes. Note: I am small, but not a petite size. I cut a size 8/10 and pin fit it before sewing since I wasn't sure of the design ease. My bust measures 32 inches. So, I had 8 inches of ease. The size 8/10 was way too big on me. It looked like a large, oversized shirt from the 80s. I then cut the pattern pieces down to a size 4/6. Now, I can actually see the blouse design. I also extended the center back in width by 1 5/8" for a self facing; I didn't want the extra bulk of an attached facing. Also, the "cut line" on the right back pattern piece is actually an overlap line, NOT a line for cutting. The next time that I make this pattern, I will add an armcye and slightly curve it under the arm to prevent the fabric from bunching.

I love this pattern. I french-seamed it, made it a little longer in back, and used a contrasting fabric for facing at wrists and neck.

I agree with other review, this is a bulky blouse. I realize it is intended to be generous, but the 4/6 swims on me. My daughter, 10/12, is modeling it. It is also pretty short, so add length to the ruffle if you are long waisted. Love the style. Keep those patterns coming!
